Why Measure Abstract Reasoning?

Abstract reasoning involves using logical reasoning and lateral thinking skills to solve new problems. People with strong abstract reasoning skills may be better able to quickly spot patterns, identify logical rules and trends in new data, integrate them, and apply them to solve problems.

Potential employers can use abstract reasoning tests to screen candidates that may be a good fit for roles that require them to think strategically, make better and faster decisions, see the big picture, and absorb and analyze new information quickly in order to solve problems.
